You guys, I have a confession. I’m way too much of a procrastinator. I mean, I feel like I’m always working on something at the last second. Maybe it’s procrastination, like in my college days when I’d be working on a paper with minutes to spare before class started (and do awesome btw).

These days, I can totally blame  “procrastination” on my kids. Sorry kids.

But really, I think it’s a little bit of both. And they’re both the reason why I’m outside grilling lemon garlic chicken skewers during Winter Storm Jonas aka #snowmageddon2016. I mean, really. We’ve had practically no snow this winter and I’ve had plenty of time to grill (not really though). But here I am, grilling in a blizzard.

Ok so it wasn’t really blizzard-ly where I am, we only got about 4 inches of snow. Which is pretty much nothing for New Englanders. It’s just enough to make it look pretty and then go out and play in. Or grill. Because grilling in the snow is always fun.

These lemon garlic chicken skewers are SO simply and easy to make. The chicken marinates in Tessemae’s Lemon Garlic dressing for a few hours to get all tasty-yum. Then they’re threaded onto skewers and grilled to delicious perfection and topped with some fresh parsley (or fresh herbs of choice).

These chicken skewers are also super versatile. I like to serve this chicken with some grilled or roasted veggies and rice or mixed into some spaghetti with fresh tomatoes, garlic, olive oil, and fresh basil. It also makes super tasty chicken salad sandwiches or you can use it to add some extra protein to your leafy green salads. They’re really perfect for meal prepping because the chicken can be used in so many ways. You can grill up a batch of these lemon garlic chicken skewers and make a variety of meals for the week.

Tessemae’s just launched their organic line this month to join their already awesome line of dressings and condiments. The organic line includes Soy Ginger, Caesar, Ranch, Lemon Garlic (which I used in this recipe), Balsamic, and Green Goddess. Tessemae’s dressing and condiments are also gluten free, dairy free, vegan, sugar free, paleo, kosher, and low sodium. Yep, that’s a lot of healthy in a bottle.

These Three-Ingredient Lemon Garlic Chicken Skewers are make an easy weeknight meal. They’re gluten free, paleo, and Whole30, and full of delicious flavor. They’re also great for weekly meal-prepping.

Ingredients

  • 4 chicken breasts, cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 3/4 C Tessemae's Lemon Garlic
  • 2 Tbsp fresh parsley, chopped (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add the chicken and Lemon Garlic dressing to a zip lock bag or bowl and mix to coat all of the chicken. Refrigerate for 1-3 hours.
  2. Preheat grill to 500 degrees and thread the chicken onto the skewers. When the grill is hot, place the skewers on the grill and cook for 15 minutes (flipping halfway through for even cooking) or until chicken is cooked through (160 degrees and juices will run clear).
